Nos Iles


Nos Iles - A Symposium on the Channel Islands was published in 1944 by the Channel Islands Study Group, while the islands were still under German Occupation. Its aim was to inform a wider audience on the islands, and present some ideas on the challenges facing the Islands following liberation, and how they may be overcome.


The introduction lists those who contributed to the publication, with the exception of "...a number of collaborators who wish to remain anonymous". These are listed in the table below, with brief details of the islands they represented, and short biographical notes.
